Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcycle accidents are often catastrophic in terms of the injuries they inflict, meaning a victim may experience the aftereffects of the injuries for life. Motorcyclists are at a much higher risk of death in motor vehicle accidents than passenger vehicle occupants. With little to no protection, a motorcyclist can easily suffer life-changing injuries, including:
- Bone fractures
- Crush injuries
- Lower extremity injuries
- Muscle, tendon and other soft-tissue injuries
- Head trauma and concussions
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Nerve damage
- Internal bleeding and organ damage
- Road rash and friction burns
- Permanent scarring and disfigurement
A motorcyclist can sustain severe injuries even with protective gear such as a helmet, boots, jacket and vest. Accident injuries can cost thousands of dollars in medical care, especially if the injury is permanent and will require ongoing treatment or rehabilitation. Even a minor motorcycle accident injury can result in significant physical pain and medical expenses.
How to Pursue Compensation After a Motorcycle Accident in Jersey City
After a motorcycle accident in New Jersey, you may be able to obtain financial compensation from one or more parties for your injuries and losses. To hold someone else legally responsible, or liable, for your accident, you will have to qualify to file a lawsuit outside of New Jersey’s no-fault insurance system.
The no-fault system requires an injured person to seek financial compensation from his or her own auto insurance provider, regardless of fault for the collision, unless the victim’s injuries are serious enough or the victim has purchased “unlimited right to sue” insurance. State law gives an accident victim the right to file a third-party claim for injuries that are significant or permanent. Although “unlimited right to sue” insurance is more expensive than “limited right to sue,” it can enable you to hold someone else liable for a crash.
If you qualify, a motorcycle accident attorney can help you go up against the at-fault party, such as a careless or distracted driver, in pursuit of compensation. An experienced motorcycle accident attorney can help you pursue financial compensation for your present and future medical bills, lost wages, motorcycle repairs, out-of-pocket expenses, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and more.
